Nice...

I was told our 28BHBE will come off the line on 2/18, not to far behind yours. Gotta order a new Equalizer Hitch, I let my 1000lb Hitch go with my last trailer. Will go with a 1200 this time as well still mulling over the Air Bags, most likely will get them and believe I will go with the Firestones as I like how they mount on the Axle versus the snubber pad which is how the Air Lifts mount.

Since it did not make it in time for our Feb 12th Camping trip I found a small local camper rental company who had a '14 Jayco Swift 287BHSW (same floor plan as the 28BHBE) that I could rent and we have it reserved so at least we will get to test run the floor plan.

Like you we are anxiously awaiting ours, with trips planned each month going forward.

We're also going with an Equalizer 1200 lb. I'm curious to find out why you will be adding air bags on your F-250 as I imagine you'd be ok with it? My in-laws have a 32RLDS which is a heavier rig towed by their F-250 fully loaded and they don't seem to be sagging at all.

We too had a trip planned (next weekend) assuming we'd have our rig before by now. We're postponing it for March 10th for our maiden voyage.

Let's cross our fingers no major mid-west snow storms the next couple weeks!

28BHBE sags our 1 ton a little. Not enough to add bags but anything more and I probably would to avoid blinding others at night with the headlights. This rig has a pretty heavy tongue load for its size really. If nothing else, it'll soften up some of the bounce. I'll probably be installing some for the heck of it since I already have the compressor and tank.

The F250's are notorious for the rear sagging, if I could have found a F350 with the Color / Options I got I would have gotten it or of had the time to order one I would have done so. I am still trying to decide what to do... Taller blocks (From F350) and Air Bags or Timbrens or Air Bags only.

I better figure it out soon as I heard from the dealer our date moved up to 2/16.

Good on the move up date. I think you'd be fine with air bags really.

ICE, when did you originally put your order in for the rig? Placed mine last month and was hoping to get it by April.

My family is considering purchasing a 28 BHBE and I have a question. Does the new unit have "Sway Command" as a standard option? Jayco's webpage states, "A Jayco Exclusive, Sway Command prep is now standard on ALL JAYCO TRAVEL TRAILERS!" (this applies to all TT manufactured in or after Jan. 2016)

However, it is still listed as a $375 option. So...is it standard or not? Does the above statement just mean that it's wired for "Sway Command?"

Just prepped for it. NOT standard.

There is a thread on this topic. Opinions seem split on whether or not it is worth the extra expenditure. Most agree it is to augment a proper sway control solution, not replace it.
